Home Dog Boarding Franchise Opportunities with PetStay



The core of the home dog boarding franchise is placing customers’ dogs with one of your network of dog carers whilst the owner goes on holiday.

Working from home with flexible hours to suit your lifestyle, you will run your own business enabling you to have a better work/life balance.

Picture your day…

Have you ever wondered what it could be like to run your own business working from home?

  • Speaking with your customers to take details about their beloved four-legged friends before matching them to one of your network of carers.
  • Arranging a meeting between your customer and carer to ensure both parties are happy.
  • Arranging all the necessary paperwork for your customer to process and confirm their booking.
  • Entering bookings on the bespoke purpose built PetStay system.
  • Continuously growing your business through local marketing, visiting like-minded businesses along with attending/exhibiting at local dog shows in your area.
  • Canvassing to recruit new carers and then following a selection progress through to the interview stage.
  • Managing your own admin and keeping your accounts up to date.
  • Looking at new ways to reach more potential customers and carers in your area.
  • Regular contact with Head Office to share reviews, news, and performance.

As your PetStay branch can be ran from home, you will find you can have more time for yourself and your family/hobbies. All of this without the commute or traffic!

“Being a part of the PetStay family really adds to what makes it so worthwhile… sharing ideas, discussing how to build our businesses and being in the knowledge we have the backing of a company that really does have the love of the dogs at the forefront of what they do! So, if you are thinking of becoming a Franchisee, I really could not recommend it enough… make the leap… it’ll be the best thing you do!!!”

Our History

PetStay began in 2005 when founder Carole Davy struggled to find care for her two beloved Cocker Spaniels, Cassie, and Lucy, whilst she went on holiday. She knew a boarding kennel would make her pooches anxious and wanted a stress-free environment in which they could relax.

Carole recognised having home from home surroundings for Cassie and Lucy, would mean she could relax on holiday safe in the knowledge that they were being well looked after. With their daily routines unchanged, in a caring home that was not too dissimilar to their own, she knew they would be happy.

From there, Carole grew her business across Hull, the East Riding of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire before making the decision to franchise in 2012. Now, PetStay is a market leader in the dog home boarding sector, which provides a fantastic one on one service for all our lovely customers and their four-legged friends.
